My Pidgin seem to be crashing a lot.
Unfortunately I notice it only an hour after.
How do I make it to do some sort of notification/restart?
Whenever it crashes? I'm Using Ubuntu 10.04 by the way.

I misunderstood. If that is what you are looking for then you might be interested in Apport.

You will probably want to look in the following location ~/.purple/logs
